I want to make sure that I get optimal performance from my Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes. How do I do that?
Make sure that your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance is a type that can be optimized for use with Amazon EBS. An EBS-optimized EC2 instance provides dedicated network throughput for volumes. For a description of the instance types, see Amazon EC2 Instance Configuration.
Improve the performance of Amazon EBS volumes by doing the following:
- For best practices and performance tuning, see Amazon EBS Volume Performance.
- Initialize EBS volumes restored from a snapshot before you use them.
- Use AWS Trusted Advisor to get a list of best practices that you can use to improve the performance of your Amazon EBS volumes. For more information, see Performance.
